New month, new game, well Nolimit City is certainly continuous when it comes to delivering new slots. It's once again a comical and entertaining theme that is well mixed with well thought out mechanics. Players familiar with their previous release xWays Hoarder xSplit will be familiar with many of the features here, as well as the characters. Indeed, this slot takes place at a later point in time than that recently mentioned slot, where this post-apocalyptic world has made Karen more insane than usual. The graphics and especially the music that has been created for this slot contributes to a more in-depth gaming experience, where it adds a perfect touch to the spins that are made. It's a reel setup that starts off somewhat innocently, but 486 ways to win from the start can quickly increase significantly with the help of the game's various features that kick in over the course of the game. The game's Infectious Wild will nudge down to the bottom row when it lands, and the multiplier created during this process will then be applied to the other symbols on that reel. The xWays and Infectious xWays are two great features that we have been taking part of a lot lately in slots from Nolimit City, where they can shake things up considerably, with more ways to win and gigantic wins many times being a reward once they have landed. There will certainly be many great tastes created during the base game spins, but the xWays symbols get to shine extra bright within the bonus game. There, the scatter symbols that activated the Bonus Meal will turn into sticky xWays symbols that during the spins can increase to an incredible 42 symbols each. This many times during our trials resulted in the final spins being able to generate phenomenal wins. Although the potential maximum win is not up there with many other games from this game provider, it is still within a very good size. Players should be prepared for the balance to shift significantly during the course of the game, as the extremely high volatility contributes to this, but it can also help create sudden bonanzas. It's a nerve-wracking ride to be a part of and they manage to capture many amusing features in one place, where along with this comical theme it will result in multiple revisits to this post-apocalyptic location. Karen Maneater is a slot from Nolimit City where we get to enjoy an entertaining gaming experience, where ingredients such as Bonus Meal, Sticky xWays and Infectious Wilds among others help to create this.

With yet another controversial backstory, the Karen Maneater slot serves up quite the treat. Visually superb, the colourful characters are odd and unique and pay homage to a fallen America in a post-apocalyptic world. Big wins see superb graphics of Karen acting as Salt Bae oddly. If you manage the hit the top payout of 11,757 x bet, a scene depicting the Last Supper appears where Karen appears as Jesus with raccoons at the table. The game’s predecessor, xWays Hoarder xSplit offers 11,030 x bet max wins which is slightly lower. This is because the amount of poop a man produces is less of that of a woman (a woman typically lives longer). Oddly, no other provider bases the max win of this kind of information. This is the sort of thing that I love and relish. In terms of the gameplay, you need xWays and Infectious xWays symbols to do their thing and increase the number of ways to win significantly. If you combine the xWays symbols with Infectious Wilds and increasing multipliers, big wins are possible. The bigger wins will come in the Bonus Meal features with the Sticky xWays symbols guaranteeing more ways to win on every free spin. Whilst the max win is lower than many Nolimit City games, the max payout will occur once every 330,000 spins which dramatically improves your chances of winning big. In comparison, the max win in Remember Gulag will occur once every 17 million spins (that’s 51.5 times as many spins). In regards to the top win, it will be won once every 21,000 spins with 3 Raccoon scatters and once every 1,000 spins with 4 scatters. The Bonus Meal features will take 204 spins approximately to trigger and an upgrade will occur every 29 spins (on average). Whilst demo mode is recommended, Karen Maneater is a little chaotic, like the world it’s set in. The gameplay is explosive and can deliver big payouts on any spin or free spin. In summary, it’s another solid offering from Nolimit City which is controversial, intriguing and genuinely bizarre.

Karen Maneater might not be an NLC flagship release, but it’s just as bent, wild, wacky, and over the top as they get – perhaps more so.
